    There was recently one for sale on WUS. Seller wants $3900

    There was another just withdrawn. They wanted 1800 buy it needed a service. We'll see how much he wants after it's serviced.

    After all these years,this post is still pushing people to join the futile search of legendary 36mm RMs...or is it me only ha?

    I do see some 41/42s, but I'd prefer a 36, which would better suit my retro-esque tastes, but never seen one..

    Where are you looking? I see them come up quite regularly...

    EDIT:
    But then again, I do look for new (to me) Omegas every day...

    If that true, I don't know what I've been doing in the past few months...

    As I currently reside in Taiwan(not Thailand), mainly the Taiwanese market,
    as well as chrono24, ebay, etc...
    Even the japanese sites rakuten, timepeaks
    but all w/o success
    May I ask where you get to come across these findings?
    pretty desperate by now... thanks again to teeritz AND OP

    It looks like a 36MM RM sold on WUS today. A quick search on WatchRecon shows that there is currently one 36MM and a couple of 39MM models posted for sale.

    I've definitely seen a few on Omega Forums in the past year.

    Also, a "few months" is nothing in this game - I think you'll need to be a little more patient than that! When I said "quite regularly", I meant several times a year. For a watch that needs to be tracked down, I'd say that's quite regular! Finally, the search needs to become a daily habit - sought-after models will disappear in a flash. Gotta give yourself a chance...

    Good luck!

    Relatively new to the forum and as an enthusiast, the game of watches doesn't seem to be as easy as I originally thought

    Nothing worth doing ever is. The 36mm model wasn't a huge (ha, get it?!) seller, compared to the 39mm model. It arrived right in the middle of the large watch craze.
    Of course, now that it's been discontinued for seven or eight years, there's a demand for it. Especially since A) the limited re-edition of 2017 is pricey and relatively rare as years go by (even though it ain't been out for a year yet,) and B the regular production 40mm model is, IMHO, a Railmaster in name only.
    At 36mm in diameter, it's not for the faint-hearted, since it goes against current trends.

    Workahol deserves some serious kudos for raising awareness of this watch in this classic size.

    And what's a post without a pic?
